Reviews

 

01/10/2008 Derek Ansell - Jazz Journel

The Smith trio usually functions as a horn player's rhythm section but here they have the chance to show what they can do as a self-contained unit. Smith is a relaxed guitarist, his lines flow along easily and with no sign of strain. The tone he produces is right in the blues, bop, swing tradition calling to mind pace setters like Wes Montgomery and Jim Hall.
Whittaker uses the Hammond organ as it should be used, as an accompanying voice providing warm chords in the background and supplying the bass line. His solo work is controlled and avoids the puffing, wheezing and general heavy handedness that too many practitioners indulge in. More a pianist in his approach to solo lines, he floats amiably at all times, contributing some well rounded imaginative solos.
Don Burrell appears to be a listening drummer, alive to the requirements of his colleagues and, like Whittaker never heavy handed. His use of brushes on Django's Nuages is highly effective and he even uses them on Killer Joe, a piece that most drummers approach with a fair degree of savagery. The programme here is ideal; a neat mix of standards and jazz staples, including the rarely heard Bobby Timmons line Pretty Memory.
No ground breaking, earth shattering innovation will be found here but solid, easy swinging jazz in the mainstream / bop mode
